The trade is for Kenny Young and an undisclosed 2020 draft pick.
Peters, 26, is in the last year of his rookie deal that pays him just over nine million dollars against the cap in his second year as a Ram. He was selected to the Pro Bowl twice in his career and was a First Team All-Pro in 2016 as well as a Second Team All-Pro in 2015. He has played in 67 career games in his five seasons for the Chiefs — who drafted him in 2015 — and the Rams.
This year, Peters has two interceptions this season and 14 tackles in six games. Since 2015, he has an NFL-best 24 interceptions. He also has 208 career tackles and 67 career passes defensed.
The Ravens secondary was littered with injuries this year, as cornerbacks Jimmy Smith, Tavon Young and Iman Marshall have been out long-term, and safeties Tony Jefferson and DeShon Elliott were lost for the season.
Young started the season in the lineup, but fell out of favor after the additions of linebackers Josh Bynes and L.J. Fort. Young is a 2018 fourth round pick of the Ravens and has made 13 total tackles this season, including two quarterback hits. He played in 16 games last season and started three. He also started three games in 2019.
Baltimore will head to Los Angeles for a Monday Night Football game on Nov. 25.
